Early morning draft @ Cafe 11 in St. Aug. Crisp, easy citrus bitter pale ale. Ibrew2or3 (9053) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAR 11, 2011
Tried on tap at the Florida Brew Fest 2011 addition. It pours clear copper with gold edges and full off white head. The aroma offers up citrus notes, some spicy hops and a touch tart. The taste is citrus hops, a little bit of lemon, a little tart, grapefruit and a sense of dry like acidity that makes me think there could be a very mild level of infection going on here. The taste is pine and mostly citrus like grapefruit. It has a light body and is easy drinkin’ and doesn’t seem to have the same acidic dryness noticed in the nose.

Tap at the brewery in Jax. Poured a clear, glowing, orange amber with a thin white head. No retention or lace. Aroma of malt extract, floral hops, sweet orange, sickly orange candies. Taste is heavily nutty bitter, walnut skin bitter. Mouthfeel is chalky, spritzy, lots of seltzer and tonic water. yayforbeer (753) - Orange Park, Florida, USA - NOV 26, 2010
UPDATED: DEC 11, 2010 Pint at the brewery, first beer I tried at their grand opening party 11/20/2010. This was an excellent pale ale, one which I would have enthusiastically sessioned, except I also wanted to try their other offerings . Pour was dark amber with a medium white head, aroma of sweet pale malts and spicy, citric hops. Beautiful and delicious. This beer was a hop lover’s delight. Medium to full body. Flavors of sweet pale malts, caramel, and several varieties of hops. Full, robust flavor was quite excellent, even better than Sierra Nevada which sets the bar for this style. Don’t know what the ABV was, its not listed on their web site and I didn’t see it posted or listed in any of their materials at the brewery. I may update this rating after some more samples. ...
